Today we came home from shopping to see a huge smoke cloude. I immediately thought it was the Camp Williams area, but in driving closer I realized it was closer to our house than I thought. These pictures are taken from our backyard. These are the mountains just north of us on the other side of the highway. Me and the girls drove up to North Ranch and the fire had burned up to the back of several homes property's. Luckily that area is all safe now, but they're still working on it from burning some houses to the east. Just as long as it doesn't cross the highway...

We can't get enough of Powell. Jaron and Kim were nice enough to join us this time without kids for a couples only weekend. We stayed at a hotel at Wahweap Marina for the 4th of July weekend. Needless to say we had ALOT of fun. Friday night we got there too late to get on the water but Saturday morning we were ready to go.
Here's Todd gassing up before we head off.
Jaron with his camera taking those EXCELLENT shots.
Todd the Captain.
We rode to rainbow bridge (took 2 hours on the boat on the water to get there...uggg) but it was worth it.
Me and Todd. This gives you a good perspective as to how big this really is. Pretty cool.
We ended the weekend watching fireworks over the Hoover Dam. It really was a great trip.
While the husband are away, the family will play.
My friend Leslie and I had absent husbands one weekend (both had to work) so we decided to head up to the canyon for a picnic dinner.
We went up American Fork canyon and we couln't have asked for more perfect weather!!!
Kate and the girls loved to walk in the stream.
